"I define consciousness in a very profound way as our ability to exercise a reflective awareness for ourselves in our own contexts"

Jascha, I would be very interested to read an elaboration on this definition.
some questions :
do you understand consciousness to be an ability?

"reflective awareness" is a very complex term, however, in the construct of your definition I do not understand in what way is it "for ourselves", and in "our own contexts". isn't that a form of solipsism, maybe in a weak version?
